These two share their love of travel and adventure and they are so joyful when they're together. In short, they make me smile and fill me with a sense of hope. With family coming from all different parts of the world to celebrate their love, Dana and Moe kept things simple by having a beautifully intimate wedding that was full of guests that included friends and family as well as her students from the school she teaches at.
When they met, it was abroad while she was teaching and he happened to be visiting on business. It wasn't long before they knew what they wanted -- to be together forever. We began the first look in the iconic Tongva Park in Santa Monica and then made our way over to a beautiful beach location in Pacific Palisades, nestled along the Pacific Coast Highway.
It's always so exciting to get to know all different types of people by being involved in such a special day. I will remember these two and this gorgeous day so fondly. From the beautiful support from their friends and family, to the pink and purple sunset that graced them as they said their vows, it was no doubt a perfectly memorable day. I have great expectations for Dana + Moe's life together. May it be a blessed one!
